When you install Acrobat X, the PDFMaker tools are added as a Ribbon in many Office products (on Windows only). Click Acrobat to open the Ribbon, which includes commands for reviews, mail merges, and other features.
Before you create your PDF file, click Preferences to open the Acrobat PDFMaker dialog box. Any Office program with a PDFMaker includes options for naming and viewing the file. You’ll see some common program settings, and some specific to a program, like adding bookmarks in Word.
You don’t have to choose settings from scratch. Click the Conversion Settings drop-down arrow to see groups of settings, including custom settings you might create and save. The Standard settings are best for general print and online use. Read a description about the settings you chose.
Now it’s time to make the PDF file. Click the Create PDF button to open the Save Adobe PDF File As dialog box. Change the file name if you like, and choose the storage location. Click Save.
The Acrobat PDFMaker window opens and processes your PDF file. Your new PDF file is ready!
